 +===== Description =====
 +
 +This plugin displays 4D datasets (or hypervolumes) in a modified image window using one slider for the 3rd dimension and another one for the 4th dimension. If it's called when the active windows is a stack (supposed to represent a hypervolume),​ it will ask the user the 3rd dimension'​s depth, and labels for the 3rd and 4th dimension, and then create the new hypervolume window. Labels are only used to display the 3rd and 4th D in the image'​s textual info bar, next to the absolute slice number of the stack. Also it can be called by some other routine, by just passing over these parameters.
 +
 +===== Features =====
 +
 +This little plugin is quite successful. Many other stack visualisation plugins share their roots in this plugin.

 +  * it does what it should do
 +  * can be called by macros
 +  * dialog to parametrize the 4D stack
 +
 +The HyperVolume_Browser is very useful if installed along the [[:​plugin:​inputoutput:​lsmtoolbox:​start|LSMToolbox]] as it extends the ability of the toolbox to browse lsm hypervolumes (the dimension being time, depth, or wavelength) in 4D confocal stacks.
 +
